That's why Baskin-Robbins has 31 flavors. Everybody likes something different.

I prefer '68-'73 and pretty much can't tolerate anything past '79 (with a few exceptions in '80 and '91).

We all like what we like. Pretty cool that the Dead touch different people in different ways - and that's what makes us all the same.

Mandojammer- I strongly suggest listening to the venerable Blossom '85. Except for one small and forgivable flub during Row Jimmy, and a lyrical anomaly in Jack Straw, this is a flawless show. Garcia is on fire.

Highlights for me:

Daytripper- gets the party going quickly
CC Rider
BIODTL
Row Jimmy
The best Playin of the '80s
A beautiful China Doll
A show-stopping Sugar Mags
Phenomenal pre-In The Dark Touch of Grey.

Check it out sometime:

I'll give it a shot. Probably time to start exploring the 80s anyway.

I said that to myself a few months ago. I started to delve into the decade, including listening to the above show. Nothing really stood out for me upon first listen and eventually I dove right back in to the 70s. I'll have to revisit that one now.
